Fairfax County Police arrested Daniel Stanley, 26, several weeks ago as a suspect in several daytime break-ins around Reston. 

NBC Washington has obtained search warrant documents from the police department earlier this week, revealing several new facts about the case. 

Stanley was charged with six counts of burglary and one count of possession of stolen property after his arrest the morning of Nov. 18. 

Per NBC Washington, an affidavit said investigators believe Stanley may be responsible for as many as 16 break-ins between August and November.

Court documents show Stanley was targeting homes and apartments near his girlfriend's home, which police said was unusual.

During the course of their investigation, police noticed the crimes took place in end units that were close to a walking path. 

A town home in Forest Edge Cluster was burgled in October, resulted in a stolen laptop, as well as other personal items. 

According to the affidavit, police later learned that laptop was sold the next day on Craigslist by a man who identified himself as Daniel Stanley.

In early November, another stolen laptop was found at Fairfax pawn shop, with the seller identified as Daniel Stanley. 

Stanley is currently in custody at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
